Develop Your Mind Strategy Of Prioritizing For Living Your Life to the Fullest Enjoyable Experience Possible

Wouldn’t it be nice if you were able to have a successful mind strategy which you could rely on to make your living experience the best? A question I asked myself many times before I got serious about life.

Not that I’m all serious about it, because I still find time to enjoy my days.

But now I realize to enjoy my days I need to manage my day a little better, which I feel we all need to do now and again to bring balance back into our lives.

Without further ado, here is how we can create a successful outcome for ourselves.

Exercise Your Priority Muscle Each Day

The priority muscle needs to be exercised each day. I know that when I go off of prioritizing, everything gets messed up. This includes dividing my time between my work, life, and family.

Our priority is very much akin to the muscles in our body. If we stop exercising it will stop growing which can hinder us from achieving the mind strategy we want to develop to live a full life.

Have you ever heard about muscle memory?

It’s when muscles remember something. Let’s say you do a bench press of the same amount of weight for two weeks in a row. After two weeks your muscle recognizes this and stops growing.

What this essentially means is you either have to add more weight or increase the reps, the priority muscle works in the same manner.  It needs to be consistently exercised each day to grow.

The way you shape this muscle depends upon how you rank your time between work, life, and family.

The best explanation I can give on this is when I was invited to a group session where many people were going to be attending. On the other hand, my daughter had a field trip on the same day.

I had to decide to go with a group of people where no one would probably remember me or go on the field trip with my daughter where memories would be made.

Well, the choice was obvious for me, but still, my priority muscle had to be exercised for it to recognize the priority. Plus the inner peace I gained with this was incredible.

Recognize Your Priorities

This is very important to me.

I want it all.

But to have it all, I have to know where my priorities lie. I know if I give attention to one thing, the other will suffer.

When I started this blog, I was spending 10 hours a day on it. I didn’t think much of it, but then I began to notice my children were acting out a little more than usual.

The way they were going about trying to get my attention caused me to lash out at them, and it’s when I realized my misplaced anger wasn’t caused by their acting out. It was because my priorities had fallen out of whack.

I was able to pull myself back in to see where my day needed reorganizing.

You should know how to recognize your priorities or else everything suffers. This can sometimes even include your health.

Take Charge

Seriously this is important. If you don’t take charge of what matters to you, it becomes a long battle with the self.

I once went to the store to buy something for myself but felt like before I made the purchase I had to get permission from my family first.

My husband was like, “Jagi why do you always feel like you need my permission to do something if you want to do it then go ahead.”

Growing up, without permission we weren’t allowed to do anything without asking our parents; the same mentality had now followed me into adulthood.

Here my husband was saying it was okay. It took me a while to get used to, but eventually, I realized, he’s right; I am my own person who can make my decisions when I need to.

Boy! What a relief that was. I was finally able to get over the inner child talk to take charge of my life in a more adult-like manner.

Give the Same Level of Energy at Home as You do at Work

Each day you get up for work. Maybe you get an hour with your family before everyone has to leave for their respective places.

That’s the case with me at least. When I get to work which is usually my home office, because I am recharged I have a lot of energy to give to matters at hand.

Towards the end of the day, I can usually feel my energy draining.

Most people are especially tired when they feel mentally drained.

The one thing which I remember each day is that my family only got one hour in the morning, that too was a rushed hour.

So each day, an hour before work is over, I let my mind go quiet, then I call upon the same enthusiasm which I applied at work to come into play when I am with my family.

You know why?

Because my family deserves the same energy as I give to my work, possibly more. As well my day with them begins when I step out the office door.

Your level of energy needs to be divided equally. If you feel you are giving it all away at work, reprioritize on how you can save what you need for your family.

Being successful yet managing the day can make a desired way of living better. Implement the little strategies into your busy life and watch the difference start to take place.

  1. Hi Jagi,

    I think that this theme is very important for all of us. People usually tend to invest most of their energy in one field (e.g. job, work), rather than to ’divide it’ on equal parts. Of course, it’s not always easy to do that, but there are ways. It takes practise, but eventually you get used to it and it’s not so hard later on. Most important thing is, I think, that you do what you love, if you are in a position. If not, than step up, be brave and change habits, or as you nicely put it ’take charge’. We are conditioned by our habits that we learned as kids, that school and parents, family taught us or made us believe. When person has the guts to change this, than a lot of things change in life. It doesn’t come by night, but if he/she decides to make changes in his/her life and works on personality, habits, spirituality, thoughts, mind – than it will surely work.

    I personally like reading affirmations (like Louise Hay, Abraham Hicks and similar), but also read books from philosophy, psychology, I take long walks in park, nature. It is proven that plants, trees improve our aura.

    I also do meditation, and listen to classical or peaceful music. Than when my mind is ’empty’, free of all ‘extra’ information I pick up that day, than I can easily plan my next day, next week and invest my energy on the best way.

    Thanks for this post,
    Best wishes,

    1. Your right to prioritize it does take practice. If it isn’t taking care of right at the beginning then it becomes a habit, which then gets hard to change as well interrupts our everyday living.

      I myself enjoy reading affirmations, meditation helps as well. I personally feel that whatever helps a person Is what they should indulge in more of.Thank you for your comment.

  2. Thanks for the great post. It made me think a little about how and how much I devoted to myself and my family. Fortunately, my work schedule is a little more friendly to devote more to the family. I work 24 hours and three days off. Looks like a lot of time for family and myself, but I often think I’m wasting it. And yet, I often ask my wife when I have to do something. She often offends if I don’t ask. But sometimes I just want to do something without asking anyone. 

    1. Great that you’ve got your priority all figured out. Once we start prioritizing think it’s easier to manage our time. I guess it’s a little inner child in us that still compels us to get some type of permission. Thank you for your comment.

  3. I really needed this. I run a blog as well and it’s so easy to spend way too many hours working on it each day and forget that my family is my number one priority. It’s not that I don’t care about them, I’m actually trying to work to help them.  The was a great reminder of how to keep things in perspective and help reserve some of my energy for those who are important.

    1. Perspective on prioritizing is very important. Glad that this article helped you to keep things in perspective. Thank you for your comment.

  4. Thank you for this fantastic post on how to develop our mind strategy of prioritizing for living our life to the fullest enjoyable experience possible.To tell you the truth this post made me feel fine after realising that I don’t need to live in fear that my childhood has created.

    I lived in fear of deserving my family and that caused me to forget myself just to please my family.It hurt me living as if I am someone else .

    You are right,we have to change our past to live the life we deserve.

    1. Childhood fears can be debilitating especially if they start to interrupt our adult life. Glad you found this article hard helpful. Thank you for your comment.

  5. This is just what I needed to hear in my life at this point in time.  Developing my mind strategy of prioritizing. Sometimes I let so many things take charge of my life despite my planning and at the end of the day it gets to negative energy.  One can be torn in between work and family and from this read, I will have to put the effort I put to work in my family.

    1. Letting things take charge of our life which can be relegated to be done later is a pretty hard concept to get around. I totally get what you’re saying. There are times where I asked him leave my phone on when I’m working, that a conversation will take over priority over everything else. Still learning. Thank you for your comment.

  6. This is a constant struggle for me. Finding the right balance and prioritising what’s important is really hard. Obviously I know my children and my husband are the priorities in my life, however, I put them first for so long that I didn’t do any work because I really was tied down to them. My blog suffered tons and now that things have calmed down with my kids I am trying to get it all back together again. But, a blog needs consistent work and doesn’t do well if it has long breaks. Thats my basic struggle, right now its balanced but if life gets hectic again, who knows?

    1. Yes, I agree with you finding the right balance and prioritizing is important. There has to be a good balance between family and work to make both things work. I find that if I give the 9-5 two my job, it works well for us. Doesn’t mean I have to work from 9 to 5, I can spread the hours out how I want. So sometimes I’m working when they’re in bed.
